It's the will of the people...

Hello friends/neighbors/strangers/freaks!

It's been a touch nuts around these parts, and so the April Wordsmiths leaked through the sieve of available time into the drain of life. A sad thing, really. My apologies for not getting out the round-up in any decent kind of time.

But we are here to remedy the chronologic leakage with a May challenge so mind-boggling that it's bound to stop time for just a moment. This picture challenge is a result of a vote by the readers of NAY, if you can believe it, and even though there was a very happy alligator and a really cute baby chick picture as possible choices, THIS is what the people chose.



You know what to do - 500 words of story by the end of the month, post it on your blog, and leave a link in the comments that you wrote. It is my solemn promise to you that I WILL post the story round up in decent-er time, this time.

My God! That's a sore sight for healthy eyes, especially this early in the morning.

Btw, who are NAY readers?

tiff said...

Ah =- NAY readers are the ones who read noaccentyet.blogspot.com, Tiff's main blog. She (I) invited them to vote for the prompt picture...silly me!

Welcome to wordsmiths!

Hm, not sure I'll be going there much, but then again I just may.

Btw and regarding your other blog, have you tried ginger beer for your bouts of sickness?

I ask this, because while and after my course of heparin / warfarin meds taken for my dvt, I experienced rather bad bouts of sickness.

Those bouts of sickness would occur in intervals of seven and lasting about an hour, with each visit leaving three donations.

I... I... I...

Oh, god, I just don't think I can do it.

"One day there was a spider lady. And she was weird and creepy. And she just kinda weirded me out every time I thought about her. And God help me, I just didn't want to imagine the kind of story she would be in.
The end "

Also, I should explain, she looks a little like one of my BFFs from high school whom I have fallen out of touch with.

Every time I see that thing, I think... Could that be her?

Creepy not. My wife wouldn't look as good in that getup. Could easily spin a tale of roadside attractions, van-camping, and Uncle Jim's interesting new girlfriend, but naaah.
